Viticulture & Winemaking:
“Chambertin!... Its name is a prestigious evocation. The place is one of the noblest there is. This nobility, active and alive, renews each summer in the sun, the miracle of nature” - Gaston Roupnel.
This miracle of nature, sensed by Arthur Trapet one fine morning in May 1919, when he decided to buy his first parcel of Chambertin, we want to be worthy of it. 1 ha 90 acres, 3 parcels. The oldest plots were planted in 1919

"The king of the cellar is the 2020 Chambertin Grand Cru, a magical wine in the making that unwinds in the glass with aromas of cherries, blackberries, rich soil tones, espresso roast, rose petals, liquorice, oyster sauce and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it`s seamless and complete, with huge concentrations, lively acids and rich, velvety tannins, concluding with a long, resonant finish. Well-connected and well-heeled readers will derive immense pleasure in comparing 2020 with the 2019 and 2018 renditions several decades from now."
-Robert Parker Wine Advocate-

Food Pairing: Pairs well with duck, goose and game birds.

With vines in Burgundy and Alsace, Trapet Family aims to translate and pass on all the grape and terroir-expressions as the know-how has been passed down to them from generation to generation.
The Domaine was established by Louis`s son Arthur in 1870 when he began acquiring vineyards and laying the foundations for the present Domaine. The Trapets now have 12 hectares of vines including 1.9 hectares of the hallowed Chambertin.
The Domaine is currently run by Jean-Louis Trapet, son of Jean and cousin of the Rossignol Trapets. He is married to an Alsacienne, Andrée. Jean-Louis moved towards biodynamic farming in the mid-1990s, working first with guru Francois Bouchet and now with Pierre Masson. The Domaine has been certified by Biodivin since 1998 also, he uses no sulphur at harvest or during the vinification and maturation processes, just adding a small dose at bottling.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
